Help OA Carry the Message

Overeaters Anonymous needs contributions to remain effective and viable year to year. By buying OA literature, making a Seventh Tradition contribution at your meeting, or giving an automatic, recurring contribution, your support keeps OA vital.

Automatic, recurring contributions can be set up to charge to your credit card monthly, quarterly, or annually, and you can cancel at any time. Personal contributions are tax deductible, and you never have to ask, “OA gave to me; did I remember to give to OA this month?”

Overeaters Anonymous accepts contributions from OA members, groups, and service bodies only. To set your monthly contribution, visit the OA Contributions website page.
